In A Medical Emergency Call 112 Then Call FAST on 968 970 626
CST/FAST is a fully registered and insured charity whose sole purpose is to serve the emergency medical needs of everyone who lives at or visits Camposol. If you have to call for an ambulance, call 112 and the operator will ask a series of questions so they make your call the correct priority. You can ask for an operator to speak in your language if you do not speak Spanish. You can then call FAST on 968 970 626
If you live on Mazarrón Country Club or Condado de Alhama, you can call the emergency number for advice over the phone. Unfortunately FAST cannot respond to calls outside Camposol.
When FAST Responders arrive, they will ask a series of questions, directed at the casualty or the partner. It may seem to delay treatment, but it is important to know if the casualty is allergic to anything, what medication they are on, have they been taking enough fluids etc. Also have they any medical problems being treated, so please be patient when the responder is asking questions.
All Responders and Instructors are volunteers who give their time freely.
FAST aims to provide a 24 hour service, but due to lack of Responder availability we have had to reduce the service at times.
FAST is recognised by the British Consulate and the British Embassy in Madrid and the Murcian Health Authority for the work they carry out on Camposol.
In July FASTwas called out 17 times resulting in 6 ambulances attending. There were also numerous calls for information; some medical, some just asking what times the local clinics and hospitals are open. We are always happy to give out information.
Why not join our team of Responders?
The shifts that are covered can be 6/12/24 hours to suit the individual. There is no need to have previous knowledge of First Aid as all training will be provided free of charge. If you do not want to be a Responder, why not join as a Supporter. Supporters are free to help where and when they can. If you have any spare time and want to help your community just call us on 634 308 362 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or come along to our training sessions every Tuesday morning at the Social Centre on Camposol B sector. Our training will recommence mid-September.
We would like to thank all the businesses on Camposol for their support. Collection tins are in most premises. All the donations and fund raising enables the whole FAST team to provide this unique service for the people of Camposol. Thanks to Cat’s bar and Tel’s bar for supporting the music night in aid of FAST.
The FAST Autumn Ball, will be held at the Amapola Restaurant in Bolneuvo on 14th September. Tickets are €30 each with €5 extra if you want coach transport. Rooms are available for those wishing to stay the night. Tickets are on sale at the Friday bookstall on Camposol B. More info on our Web page or call 634 308 362
The FAST nurses and doctors are collecting every Monday morning. Give them a wave and your spare cash; they are always extremely grateful.
FAST will soon be wearing the new colour shirts. Look out for the dark green shirts worn by
responders and support team members.
We regret the cancellation of the FASTChristmas Fayre this year due to problems with clashing with other planned events.
FAST are working on Camposol for you. Help us to help you.
